"dear supervisors, i'm writing in reference to a hearing scheduled march 14 in reference to a contract the city has entered with the electric tour company. my understanding is certain groups are opposing these out of a concern for safety for other uses where they are proposed to operate. it is my belief based on my experience as a segway owner and operator that these complaints are groundless and should not prevent them from proceeding with this contract did tour services. i'm a resident of district 7 and an employee of salesforce.com i am an owner of model i2. i have operated it nearly 1,500 miles, many of which have been navigated in san francisco. opponents to the operation include a group that supported san francisco ordinance 241-02, which banned operations of epa md's on public transit. walk sf is one such group, and their web page includes a list of arguments that were largely speeches including speculative and groundless cla

this situation and didn't necessarily think u.n. action or u.s. action was necessary or something that should happen. what was the turning point for you where you thought, okay, it's time to go? >> well, first of all, i laid out the conditions required, which were the u.n. security council resolution and arab league support. and i saw them being taken. and then i thought about what the consequences were if gadhafi was allowed to continue to use force in defiance of international opinion. and so gadhafi looks like he'll have to be dealt with anyway. but this is the slippery slope of intervention, that many of us had been warning about for some weeks is the chorus of cries out there, let's go intervene, let's go do something. once you start this, it has to be finished. it will be very hard now to admit and say to gadhafi, okay, well, you got away with it, okay, now you're the leader of libya, we'll buy your oil. so now we've got a state which is at least in appearances seems to be an outlaw state. >> general clark, stand by. i just want to reset here for our viewers as we cross the top of the h

of the questions raised by commissioner lee -- is it your intent to use this as a guideline for prioritizing future funding? once the dust settles and you have the real numbers to work with. and i know that it will probably be a while, probably not this year, but in the next couple of years, it will really be looking at this more in an earnest, so is it -- what is your intent? are you really going to use this as a tool for establishing your priorities in the future? and for this year, do you see any kind of impacts where you might, in terms of establishing your core values and setting your priorities, where you would use this to guide you? >> we definitely plan to use this. as we mentioned in the beginning, and i think there is a slide on this powerpoint, it talks about we had a mandated three-year cycle. then the second year is use the needs assessment to come up with exactly what you're talking about, the action plan. so what will our department specifically do in terms of prioritizing what populations, what types of services, and that is a public document called the children service allocation p

the transportation security administration's risk base driven approach to aviation security and specifically the use of advanced imaging technology. as a chief technology officer, i will focus on the aspects and lee will discuss the human aspect. bere going into detail, the technology is vital to the nation's ability to keep travelers safe in the 9/11 world. we face a determined enemy bent on our way of life. they arrested a man planning an attack on the dc subway system and a young saw disrespectful frankly -- saudi man was arrested. whether it was a failed attack in 2009, the plot in october, or the intelligence plots we see every day, al-qaeda and intelligence groups continue to target our system. we have to detect today's threat, not yesterday's. we have a able system that works in several measures. one aspect of the check point is what we're hear to discuss today. mr. chairman, well hidden devices are among the gravest threat to security. while there's no sell veer bullet, this gives us the best opportunity to detect the threats. we piloted the technology in early 2007 knowing of these threats

continue to engage community in imagining with us what the geneva car barn can mean. its significance for community and enhancement of life. i just want to point out, that block of text that is to the right of the frame on this side -- is called a word cloud. it is representative of a workshop event we had a few weeks ago with 400 people from the district to we brought together to think about their aspirations, the issues and concerns that they thought the car barn, once fully realized, would address in their community. i would also like to say we continue to work with community residents, merchants, and artists, to lift of art and culture in the district. most recently, we have joined with the district 11's arts council. revenue models. how are we paying for this? in the last stages of strategic work, we have identified three revenue models for the geneva car barn, once fully realized. and of course, there are contributed income that come from foundations. we have a dead by sources that will actually pay you to work in the program that will be run out of the barn. one of the more int
to announce. it is very clear that the u.s., france and other western powers don't want to create the perception globally that this is strictly a western action general the arab nation. arab partners are involved. is that role a symbolic role or a more active role where you have jet fighters deployed? of course, it was the arab nations one week ago today that voted to support a no-fly zone over libya. the arab league calling for the u.n. security council to push ahead of the no-fly zone. today here in cairo, we caught up with the leader who voted in the nationwide referendum. the arab league supports the no-fly zone, but he emphasized this is not to be a military action or invasion. no one is talking about invading libya. certainly when you look at countries like france and listen to statements by french president nicolas sarkozy, the rhetoric is different. he suggests attacking targets on the ground. when you look at how the resolution is written up, it leads the possibility of attacks and targets on the ground open. it will be interesting to see how arab nations will react if th

this the crusader enemy is significant. that's the same kind of technology that are used by groups like al qaeda, which is ironic considering that it is gadhafi that says that he is fighting against al qaeda. all day on libyan state television, we've been listening to rhetoric against the west, against the united states, against israel, how that this is a grand conspiracy organized by the united states and israel, that this is a new crusade and that is the language they are using to describe what they call the latest attack on a civilian area. >> pentagon is making it clear that the french are part of the coalition but they're not the attacks that the french made on that he has armored vehicles earlier today was not part of operation "odyssey dawn." it began when the american ships fired the targets . general mccaffrey, how far does this go in crippling gadhafi's ability to inflict violence against his people and against these armed rebels? >> almost no impact at all. i think it does have a psychological impact on the leadership, which i would hope might contribute to some of his support startin
